April is Anti Cruelty Month

April is Animal Cruelty Prevention month!

The Pup'parel pups got together, and decided that in honor of this special month, they should DOUBLE their donations for our Awareness Ribbon Pet Pendants. So, since the Pup's truly do run this show, this is what we are going to do...

For the entire month of April, we will donate our normal $1 to the pet-related non-profit of your choice, PLUS $1 to the Somerset-Pulaski County Humane Society to support their efforts to put a stop to animal cruelty. This means that if you choose "Pulaski County Humane Society" at checkout, they will get $2 for every one sold this month!

These awareness ribbons make GREAT zipper pulls for your jacket or handbag too! Show your support for animials, help prevent abuse and cruelty. Be their voice!

What a terrific even this was!! 

A HUGE THANK YOU to all the community supporters 
who donated items for the auction; those who donated food,
 the band and those who gave so much time to this 
wonderful event last night raising much needed $$ with
 which to continue our work for animals. 
Candice Girkey and Kathleen Johnson you had a terrific idea and made it 
happen! We hope everyone had a grand time and enjoy the 
items for which you had the HIGH BID!!!
See you next year...…...

Chained dog froze to the ground in Somerset KY....
UPDATE: Remanded to the Grand Jury; but 'agencies' have not presented all evidence to the Commonwealty Attorney's office yet, so has NOT gone before the Grand Jury for decision........

Felony Cruelty

Ronald and Debbie  Brison

Their dog was found by police officers after neighbors reported it barking for hours and hours. 

The police discovered that the dogs' back legs were chained together; it was tethered to something and had frozen to the ground. The dog was bleeding from the mouth where it had tried repeatedly to bite through the chains holding it. It was thin, emaciated and had been there so long it had feces covering it that had also frozen. The dog appeared to have a dislocated hip, no food and frozen water. The temperature was 12 degrees.

The dog did not survive. 

Please stand up for animals-be their voice--make sure people are held accountable for callous cruelty such as this.

Thanks to Somer City Roller Derby and Sk8ters Paradise for having us Feb 15.
Great time for all of us and our therapy and available dogs too!
This wide-eyed pretty girl needs her own fairly quiet home without 
other pets.  She was surrendered when her humans had to move to a non pet place. 
She has been stressed since and likes peace and quiet. She is a 'cuddler' and misses
 her teenage friend with whom she slept every night.
She is fully vetted and is about 3 years old. It will take her some time to adjust.
Calendar Contest.....
Due to an hectic, event-packed upcoming season, we have decided to delay the calendar contest until 2020. This will allow adequate time  to have an exciting turn out of submissions and a stunning calendar of loved rescue pets!

Entries already submitted will be held over. A schedule for entries, judging time, and calendar production will be published after the New Year.

Please actively invite and remind friends, family and co workers to submit entries to give their pets the chance to BE A STAR!

New handouts and information will be disseminated early next year!

We will count on all our members and supporters to promote this fun contest!  

Thank you.

Pulaski County Humane Society participated in 

 Somernites Cruise events all summer!

Many dogs stopped by for a drink and attention.

Our volunteers enjoyed meeting residents and visitors alike to educate them to

the Humane Society programs; See you NEXT YEAR!!

Rally Poster Girl....
Mandy recently won 4th Place in the Greater Good Photo Contest; thanks to everyone who VOTED~~~
Mandy shown here, is a foster of the Humane Society and is our POSTER child for the Anti Abuse Rally; she came to us after a horrific life of abuse and neglect. She lost the sight of one eye, the other is limited, she is riddled with scars and filled with fears. This is why laws must change. Sprite her foster sister proudly also wears a NO MORE ABUSE bandana. See you Friday downtown Somerset on the Square; 6p!

PCHS' programs  altered  1017 animals in 2017.. 

IIn 2018 PCHS has altered 1182  animals 

 setting new records

TNR program.....

The Humane Society is committed to our targeted TNR (trap neuter and return/relocate) program and is delighted to announce that we have been awarded a grant from Maddies' Fund,  in order to continue this important work of reducing the size of cat colonies in and around Somerset. 

Stray to Strut....

The work of rescuers is exhausting and often heartbreaking but then we get a story like this to share. 

This sweet dog was a stray at the Animal Shelter here in Pulaski County and now LOOK. A Runway model in is sweet.

Thanks to the many who work so many hours to arrange rescue; transport and adoption of the thousands of animals who need help every day.

Justice for Mira....

McCreary County Grand Jury Drops Case against Man for Dog Torture
Meeting for their regular August session, the McCreary County Grand Jury returned a “no true bill” in the case of Larry Meadows who had been charged with the torture of a dog or cat.  Meadows was arrested after a dog suffered severe injuries and eventually died from those injuries. A no true bill from the Grand Jury means there was not sufficient evidence presented to warrant charges and for the case to proceed.
PLEASE find out who your elected officials are in Frankfort and write or call them  insisting on better animal legislation.

Justice for Snow....

        Legislative update: 

Great News for animals. On January 18th 2018, the accused killer of little SNOW was sentenced to jail. He will serve a year incarcerated and will also do community service. PCHS is very grateful to the officials who made sure this case stayed viable and went the distance to assure JUSTICE for little SNOW!

Making a difference

The Pulaski County Humane Society  works alongside the Pulaski County Animal Shelter to save many dogs and cats from being euthanized.

Each week, PCHS members go to the shelter and transport dogs and cats to several different rescues.

Some dogs are adopted as far away as New York state and Ontario, Canada.

This is just one of the ways that the Pulaski County Humane Society saves the lives of animals.
